Key Dates

Vote Safely
If voting in person, follow simple precautions to protect yourself and others from COVID-19: 
  • Wear a face covering. Face coverings are required to enter all polling sites. Protect those around you and wear a face-covering correctly (over your nose and mouth).
  • Practice healthy hand hygiene. Polling sites will provide hand sanitizer, and you can also bring your own. Use hand sanitizer before and after touching any shared surfaces, and wash your hands with soap and water immediately after you get home. Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
  • Practice physical distancing. Polling places will be set up to ensure physical distancing. Follow instructions and stay at least 6 feet away from others while at your polling site.
  • Avoid long lines and crowds. If you can, vote early before Election Day or go when your voting center is less busy, usually mid-morning or early afternoon.
  • Stay home if you are sick. Voting is important, but it’s more important that you get well and keep New Yorkers safe!
